It isn't about hunting, Senator Sparky. Gunowners don't need a reason to want an AR-15 and a 30 round magazine (not "clip", Elmer). It's a civil right, and we don't need a reason to excercise it.
Or as the meme puts it, "Why do I want an AR? Because fuck you, that's why."
Yes, I am going to be really cranky on this subject. Be prepared.
